5 Shimmering Shades of White

Pure, snow white–in a variety of finishes, plus a highlighter that looks almost white in the pan but is a little warmer and golden than that. I wanted to include a white polish, but there weren’t many permanent ones to choose from (that I’ve covered and were good) — what white polishes have you found to work best? You can check out comparison swatches of my picks, too 🙂

  1. Inglot #453 — bright, metallic white (and not too cool-toned)
  2. Sugarpill Tako — matte white
  3. Maybelline Too Cool — creamy, cool-toned white
  4. NARS Albatross — a dusting of shimmer and sheen
  5. NARS Santa Monica Blvd. — bright white for your lash line

5 Sparkling Blue Hues

I tried to pull a good variety in blues, from cobalt, purplish blues to sky blues to your bold, bright blues–and not just eyeshadows! I had to pick an eyeliner, because it’s a great way to add a bold pop of color without going full-on blue. If you want to see my picks together, the comparisons.

  1. Sephora My Boyfriend’s Jeans — a pop of cobalt blue for the lash line
  2. OCC Pond — Tardis blue for your nails
  3. Le Metier de Beaute Lapis — a beautiful, medium-dark blue with shimmer
  4. Color Club Over the Moon — a shimmering, holographic blue
  5. Inglot #426 — a brightened, medium blue

5 Reds to Set Off Fireworks

Will you be wearing your red, white, and/or blue on July 4th? I’m most likely going to sport a red lip, at the very least! Here are five of my picks for a little red-themed inspiration, and it was quite hard to narrow it down, because there are so many awesome red lipsticks and polishes in particular. So think of this as just a moment in time – surely if I picked a week from now, it would be different 🙂

  1. Fyrinnae Hitched — a bold, warm red with a beautiful satiny sheen
  2. Zoya Blaze — a deeper, cool-toned red with sparkle
  3. Maybelline Very Cherry — rich, cherry red with a matte finish for under $10
  4. Make Up For Ever #99 — pure matte red for those who dare to go big
  5. Guerlain Garconne — classic, sumptuous deepened red

And for fun, I pulled ’em all up to compare here.
